It seems that you took more interest in the troubles in Northern Ireland because you have a part Irish ancestry.
That pretty well is racism. It’s unavoidable. You take more interest in subjects that connect to your identity which includes your racial background.
Taking the same amount of interest in civil strife in countries with lots of brown people would be indicative of not-racism – but only a Martian could be so impartial.
Adam Smith has written well on this.

Welcome to the banned list
For of course Adam Smith was wrong about everything, having been before Spud invented proper economics. How could someone not be banned for that?
